# Separating variables differential equations watch

1. dy/dx = ry(1-(y/k) when y(0) = k/3

How do I solve this?

dy/dx = ry(1-(y/k) when y(0) = k/3

How do I solve this?
assuming r and k are constants, separate the variables, then partial fractions

I can't seem to do the partial fractions :/

please post a photo of your workings and I will try to guide you
5. Is it 1/y - 1/k?
6. (Original post by Lunu)
Is it 1/y - 1/k?
definitely not
7. Is it 1/y + 1/k(1-y/k)?
